This hole-in-the-wall restaurant likes to pretend it's a well-kept secret. Alas, one step into the eatery will prove nothing is further from the truth. The dining room is continuously packed, albeit with an older crowd. The menu evokes simple home-cooked meals made all the more comforting by the warm service. Among the popular dishes are the lentil soup, salmon in a white wine and lemon sauce, the lamb shanks and the beef goulash. The dining room is quiet, encouraging pleasant discussion unhindered by a raucous soundtrack. This place has pleasant written all over it, pleasant for those in need of a respite from the Uptown revelers or pleasant for those who just like life at a slower pace with a side of fresh, hot cinnamon roll.
